fstab and boot partition

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

There's discussion here about creating a temporary entry in the /etc/fstab file to point to the boot partition. It'd be helpful to clarify these instructions for PPC installations in which there is no separate boot partition. --Wideaperture (talk) 16:20, 21 May 2019 (UTC)


Quik bootloader no longer in repo, Handbook still refers to it

The quik bootloader is no longer in portage.

The ppc32 handbook still refers to it https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:PPC/Installation/Bootloader#Alternative:_Using_Quik

Yabootconfig usage directions unworkable

The ppc32 handbook recommends exiting the chroot to use yabootconfig, this is unworkable: the yabootconfig tool is not present on the gentoo ppc32 LiveCD, and even if the PATH variable is adjusted so that the yabootconfig script can be found along with the other tools, the script still fails because of a hard-codded path at line 660 in the yabootconfig script.
